Is This The Most Expensive Hotel Room Ever?

You might expect to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a suite at the Burj Al Arab or for a stay on Necker Island, but here’s one that might surprise you.

Check out the rates for Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica for tonight on Kayak.


Yep, that’s right, the price for a “Deluxe King Room with Ocean View” is $999,999.


That, of course, is without the $127,504.12 in taxes.


Keep in mind this hotel isn’t even in the Shangri-La chain, so you won’t be earning Gold Circle points for your stay.

Man, and I thought the maximum room rate per day for my room at the Delano was high…


(Tip of the hat to Eric)


  1. I think the strategy is to make the Deluxe King Room $999,999 so that the One Bedroom Suite at the same price would look like a steal.

  2. Man, just think of all the minimum spending you could meet with just one mattress run, or how helpful this would have been in “Brewster’s Millions”… 😉
